My local classic rock radio station is celebrating Christmas Day by playing only Beatles and, I think, solo Beatles music. heart

Apparently, John was wrong...they're not bigger than Jesus, they ARE Jesus! a-hard-days-night-john-1

"Have a Merry Beatlemas" has a nice ring to it...a-hard-days-night-george-10

In all seriousness, though, what a great idea.

Definitely my favorite of the local stations now.

Great idea and very envious. Over here would have to make do with Shakin' Stevens and Slade getting played 27 times an hour if i tuned in.

Ours did Beatles A to Z at Thanksgiving. It was cool, but all the songs were not in the order I am used to. After "It Won't Be Long", I started belting out "All I've Got To Do" when "It's All Too Much" started playing!

It's one of the very few times when being hardcore was a disadvantage.

Enjoy!

As movies were brought up earlier, what's everyone's all time desert island Christmas movie? For me, it has to be Miracle on 34th Street. I watched that on Christmas Eve for about 11 straight years, and then me and my brother got sick of it… but I'm making sure it gets played this year.

Die Hard.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Zig - it put a smile on my face as normal. And, I am of the opinion that one great rewrite deserves another, even though it can't top Zig's. Band, Neil Young's Everybody Knows this is Nowhere:
I think I'd like to go back home, and take it easy
There's a woman that I'd like to get to know this Christmas

Everybody seems to wonder, what it's like down here
I gotta get away from this day to day runnin' around
Everybody knows this is Christmas
Everybody, everybody knows, everybody knows, oh yeah

Every time I think about back home, it's cool and breezy
I wish that I could be there right now, just watching hockey

Everybody seems to wonder, what it's like down here
I gotta get away from this day to day runnin' around
Everybody knows this is Christmas
Everybody knows, everybody knows, everybody knows

Everybody, everybody knows,
Everybody knows, this is Christmas
Everybody knows, This is Christmas
Everyone always seems to be worried for the big day,
But me, I've got the BB to help me.

Thanks guys.

Thanks Zig, it truly means a lot to get a compliment from the master of the medium, as Capone is to crime, the tunesmith you are.
Alrhough Zig, you complicated my End of Year vote fir best rewrite. I was going to do the "Baby You're A Rich Man" from the Teddy Pepper thread, but this is so good. What to do?

Ok. The voting needs to be done soon (by the 25th december), i cant remember diddly squat about previous posts and voters that fit the categories, and dont have the time to go thru threads to get the answers. So if people could post accordingly that would be fantastic (i am in no way talking about bribes, hints or anything else that could be construed as manipulation).

 

And to give this post some meaning there is a 30 min documentary on BBC Radio 4 at 11:30am on 27th December (i presume it will be available on the bbc iplayer  for 7 days shortly afterwards) called Beatles Christmas which looks at the beatles christmas messages, live shows and MMT. If anything it will hopefully give Apple something to think about in regards to officially releasing the messages.  This will be the second year in a row that the Beatles christmas messages are highlighted to some degree (an edited version of The Beatle Christmas Record (1963) was made available on itunes last year for free download).

Yeah Into the Sky with Diamonds, I found that one by accident. A nice surprise, eh?

mmrm - great video, thanks. I also appreciate the news about the upcoming BBC Radio special. I hope to be able to hear it.

Sun King- thanks for the nice words about the rewrites. I have a lot of fun throwing them together.

No problem Zig, your rewrites never fail to put a huge smile on my face. And that, my friends, is totally true.

(God, this day sucks. I am sick as hell, coughing all the time, and still have two really shitty classes up next; could this day get any worse?)
